2013-2014 Selections  |  Watch and Participate

Welcome to DukeReads!

For five seasons, DukeReads has offered books selected by diverse Duke faculty and experts to give alumni a chance to hear what Duke is reading and learn insights from favorite Duke personalities. We have offered recorded interviews and the opportunity to engage with the selectors in a blog.

Would you like to view one of our past shows? You can also view videos of past DukeReads events on YouTube – search with key words “DukeReads”.

While we consider your feedback and how to improve this program, we are capping the blog and listing the remaining books for the year.

We will pick up with the Duke Summer Reading Selection for the Class of 2018, in collaboration with Duke Student Affairs. Stay tuned for updates on this selection.
